The roughly two and a half years since Avast and AVG joined forces have been busy ones, according to Chapman. “We’ve been doing a lot of work to integrate our security offerings, bringing really the best of the best technology together in one solution,” he says, adding that the company is “a good way through” that process.
It’s also weeks away from introducing new security offerings that expand beyond its base in anti-virus. “We are looking to bring to market around RSA time and further on in the months ahead some new layered security solutions for SMBs and our channel partners to bring a fuller solution around security to SMBs,” says Chapman, alluding to this year’s RSA security conference, which takes place the week of March 4th. “We want to bring them an easy to manage, easily deployable solution that goes beyond just the endpoint.”
Chapman declined to provide further specifics except to say that the new systems will fill a gap in the market for security software offering enterprise-grade protection with less complexity at a lower cost.
